Akeles Top 10 Marketplace apps in 2022

7 February 2023
Comments are off for this post

Are you curious which apps other users are buying to extend the capabilities of their Jira, Confluence or Bitbucket?

This year, we are pleased to share again our updated Top 10 Popular apps with fellow Atlassian users.
It is a good opportunity to review which useful capabilities to add to your Atlassian suite.

From our perspective, Marketplace apps play a significant role for successful adoption by

  • enabling automation to improve productivity, speed or security
  • providing additional capabilities like Business Analytics, Test Automation, etc
  • organising information to provide insight and facilitate collaboration

How is the ranking done?

The ranking is based on the number of licenses bought through us in 2022.
We felt this will be a better measure of the popularity of the app.

In event of a tie, we go by the licensed users count, followed by the total sale value for the app.

Akeles Top 10 List

Congratulations to the winners. It is an achievement given there are over 4,300 apps listed in Atlassian Marketplace.

Additional insights

We would also like to share some of our observations:

  • A number of apps have been acquired by Appfire. Now, Appfire has 7 apps out of the top 30 apps in our lists
  • Customers with Server instances are upgrading to Data Center licenses or migrating to Atlassian Cloud. This is in preparation to the end of support for Atlassian server products on 15 Feb 2024
  • Data Center instances seemed to have a much higher take up rate for Marketplace apps whereas Cloud instances tend to stay vanilla without 3rd party apps
